My PC has finally hit the wall again after another year of collecting errors, crashes, bugs and viruses. My only issue is that my PC connects to the internet through a wireless card and when I reformat it will not reconize the wireless card because I don't have Sp2 on my XP Pro cd. I was wondering if there is a way I can burn SP2 or a way to get my wireless card running without the service packs once I reformat.

You can make a cd to incorporate SP2.
It is called slipstreaming and you can find directions about how to do it here:
